  • General Information
    About Lincoln University of Pennsylvania

    Lincoln University, the oldest historically Black University, was founded in 1854. With an international focus, it provides a quality education and prepares its undergraduates and graduate students, on its main campus, its Urban Center, and through distance learning, to be leaders of the highest caliber. With a commitment to promoting technological sophistication for its students in all academic programs, Lincoln University takes pride in excellent teaching, scholarly activity and inspired learning. To foster in students an appreciation for competition and coexistence in the global marketplace, Lincoln University seeks to infuse its curricula with modules of instruction that require its students to recognize an international community of people and to understand moral and ethical issues, human dimensions, and leadership challenges posed by technology. Lincoln University offers a liberal arts and sciences-based undergraduate core curriculum and selected professional and graduate programs in an environment marked by small classes, quality instruction and a demonstrated concern for each student as an individual. Admission opportunities in education and leadership development are offered to the descendents of those historically denied the liberation of learning and who have demonstrated a potential for academic success. Lincoln University fosters a continuing relationship with its alumni and the employers of its graduates. Embracing the classic concept of a university, the faculty, students, administration and trustees of Lincoln University recognize the primacy of the institution's three historic purposes: 1) to teach honestly, and without fear of censure, what humankind has painfully and persistently learned about the environment and people; 2) to preserve this knowledge for the future; and 3) to add to this store of knowledge. Lincoln University remains committed to its historical purpose and to preserving its distinction as an intellectual and cultural resource for this region.
